HOW CAN YOU HELP
Your help is needed!
The Heritage Council of NSW is considering the State Heritage-listing of Glenlee and has invited the community to make written submissions regarding the heritage significance of Glenlee.
We need as many people as possible to make a submission. Below is a list of items you may wish to consider in your submission. Please don’t copy and paste but use the points which are important to you and put in your own words. Your submission doesn’t need to be long or detailed but just show your heart for Glenlee.
“The Heritage Council of NSW resolved, at its meeting on 5 July 2022, to give notice of its intention to consider listing Glenlee on the State Heritage Register (SHR) in acknowledgement of its heritage significance to the people of New South Wales. This advice is in accordance with section 33(1)(a) of the Heritage Act 1977 (NSW).
Members of the community are invited to make a written submission regarding the proposed listing and significance of Glenlee. Submissions should be posted or emailed to the Heritage Council of NSW at the following address during the public submission period commencing on 13 July 2022 and closing on 10 August 2022:
Heritage Council of NSW
Locked Bag 5020
PARRAMATTA NSW 2124
Please note that the Heritage Council is unable to accept submissions received after the above closing date.
Glenlee is likely to be of State heritage significance as a rare, intact, early European riverfront settlement, with a high degree of representative significance as a demonstration of an early way of life, and of significant activities in NSW.”
The Georges River Councillors have unanimously carried resolutions calling on Council to seek funding to purchase Glenlee.
Local State Member Mark Coure developed a petition asking for community support in opposing the proposed development application (DA2021/0181) at the Glenlee (Lugarno Farm) precinct in favour of handing this space to the community to preserve the intrinsic social, cultural and environmental significance. He wrote to the Premier, Treasurer and other relevant Ministers requesting funds for the NSW Government to acquire Glenlee.
The Upper House of state parliament passed a resolution that the Government purchase Glenlee.
We need you to take action urgently. Use the email addresses below and call on Georges River Councillors, the state government and opposition parties to work to purchase Glenlee now before it is again too late.
